Cannot say nothing happened yesterday. McCarthy lost his gavel. He never asked for help from the Democrats and he got none. It is not necessary to look for some erudite reason to explain what happened. The Democrats bailed his sorry as out Saturday night to avoid a shutdown. More Democrats supported him than did Republicans.
Then on Sunday morning McCarthy threw the Democrats under the bus blaming them for the last minute chaos. That would piss off the good humor man.
Right now we have no Speaker. Your guess is as good as mine as to when we will or who it will be. The Speaker can be anyone, even a non House member.
Meanwhile in New York, the judge finally issued a limited gag rule. It was about time. Trump was getting crazier and crazier each time he spoke. It will not be long until Trump violates the gag order, but he did take down the picture of the judge’s clerk whom he, without a shred of evidence, intimated was (married) Chuck Schumer’s girlfriend.
Trump also announced he will testify. Any lawyer who allows that should be shot. However, it is not legal malpractice to allow it. Bad judgment is not malpractice,
I know dozens of lawyers who would pay large sums for the opportunity to cross examine Donald Trump.
In Georgia, several defendants have been offered plea deals. That is a win/win for the defendant who saves lots of money and could avoid jail time. It streamlines the case for the prosecutor and makes room for Trump to be tried much sooner.
The Marlins had no chance last night. Wheeler was virtually unhittable. The score was only 4 to 1, but it could have been much worse.
In order to run away from the chaos they have caused, the House is in recess for the rest of the week. However, first, these jerks have told Nancy Pelosi she has to move her office. Besides being vindictive and stupid, they are petty..
See you tomorrow. At least that is my plan.
